New meaning to “Live by the sword, die by the sword” for one particular Islamic State executioner

A masked man speaking in what is believed to be a North American accent in a video that Islamic State militants released in September 2014 is pictured in this still frame from video 10_small.jpg

It seems that one of the Islamic State’s top executioners has had his own head lobbed off instead of killing others for once. The corpse appeared to be tortured, had a cigarette in his mouth, and had the words “This is evil, you Sheikh” on a note attached to his head. The Islamic State is known for executing, torturing, and hunting down those who oppose it and to enforce Sharia law. The Islamic State even goes after its own soldiers at times, though how many of those have to do with desertion is hard to pinpoint. Who actually killed the man is also unknown, perhaps his own comrades, random citizens, or government forces? Either way, quite a fitting end. I wonder if he’s enjoying paradise and the 72 black-eyed virgins just waiting to give it up?

In other Caliph news the Islamic State announced it has a two billion (US $) with a surplus of 250 million. The Islamic State claims to use the money to aid families of fallen fighters, rebuild impoverished cities, aid the poor, and of course further it’s war against Iraq. I mentioned in a previous post about the Islamic State ambition of minting its own coin and  to “emancipate itself from the satanic global economic system. Now the Islamic State has claimed that it has its own Islamic Bank and as always, it’s based upon Sharia. Perhaps this is just propaganda to scare their enemies, though people were also calling them the “jayvee” one year ago also. Remember this about Sharia banking, it’s “Ethical banking you can believe in“.

The Islamic State has also launched one of its first assaults against another hated enemy, Saudi Arabia. There weren’t many assailants and only two Saudi border guards were killed on the Saudis’ rather large Iraqi frontier. But Saudi Arabia must be a little wary as noted by its deployment of 30,000 additional soldiers back in July. Only time will reveal how that war goes.
